According to Dr. Dang Vu Canh Linh, current editorial board of the website at VUSTA's headquarter regularly connect to guide and support collaborators in implementing editorial work, writing news articles and other related activities. However, the VUSTA's site still faces challenges such as loose connection among collaborators of the network, the collaboration mainly come from several active provincial unions such as Phu Yen, Thai Binh, Vinh Long, Bac Giang, Ha Giang, Lao Cai. This makes the overall picture of VUSTA has not fully reflected, shown diverse activities of member associations with different sectors and the growth of the VUSTA' s system. There have been some poor quality news and articles because the some authors play both roles of performing scientific work and performing as a journalist at some organizations in VUSTA's system.

Opinions of Mr. Tran Dinh Thao - Former Deputy Director of the Department of Domestic News, Vietnam News Agency showed that editorial profession has never been a "hot" job because it is the most difficulties, complicated and tight work in a press agency. However, it still attracts many young people. Loving-writing young people would love to editing job. He also gave advices to those who are looking for editorial jobs on qualifications and characteristics of a editing staff, including: passion, pursuing passion and capacity.

According to Mr. Nguyen Huu Gioi, the President of Vietnam Library Association, the professional associations should actively participate in collaborating and writing news and articles for VUSTA's website that both enhance exchanging experiences and promoting of the image of their own organization to other audiences of the whole country. However, it is difficult to have an approved writings to be uploaded on VUSTA's site because we have to meet series requirements to achieve a quality article and news such as: identifying appropriate topics and issues, reflecting the the truth of the issue, describing exactly the phenomenon happening in the association's activities. Besides that, Mr. Gioi recommended the participants who are collaborators to proactively participate in providing objective, scientific and high responsible comments and suggestions for the improvement of VUSTA's website in order to serve better readers throughout the country.
